A Guide To Hot Tub Hoists & Lifts

Can you use a pool lift or spa hoist for a hot tub?

Getting in and out of a hot tub is totally possible with the help of a pool lift or spa hoist. There are several different options currently available which are suitable for the home environment. We have created this useful guide to the latest pool lifts and hoists which are suitable for a home hot tub, jacuzzi or swim spa.

If your hot tub or swim spa is fully in the ground, then you can choose from one of our portable pool lift solutions. However, most hot tubs and swim spas are partially above ground or have a wall or raised edge, therefore you will need a fixed pool lift or if there is only a small difference in height (up to 50 cm) then you could consider the revolutionary Pelican Pool Lift. Here are the options.


Pelican Pool Lift (Portable)

Customers who have been limited to fixed pool lift solutions for above ground hot tubs can now enjoy the benefits of a portable option. The Pelican Pool lift is the first portable pool lift able to overcome architectural barriers such as walls or raised edges (up to 50 cm high) thanks to its advanced technical features.

The Pelican Pool lift has a maximum lifting capacity of 140kg and a travel of 1600mm. The seat can be automatically moved up/down, left/right using the mobile push-button panel. Safety features include a manual brake on the rear wheels, side stabilizers and an emergency button.

The compact design and folding seat make this product a great space-saving solution which can be conveniently stored away. The Pelican Pool Lift is affordable, durable and offers ease of use with its removable rechargeable battery.
